6:00am
thank you. good morning, everybody. it is friday, we're glad about that, it's november the 2nd. good to have you with us. it's 6:00. >> it is. well, the unemployment has bounced up again. the jobs report was just released a few minutes ago. cate caugiran down in the newsroom with the very latest on the numbers. >> reporter: frank and michelle, the numbers show that more jobs were added in october. let's take a look. the numbers show the u.s. economy added 171,000 jobs in october right now unemployment rate is now at 7.9%. that's up from september's report which put us at 7.8%. now, that was the first dip below 8 since before the president took office. in terms of voters, some experts say these numbers are unlikely to sway them. >> if you are a person that feels that the general recovery that we have had has not been as much as it should have been, then you have already made up your mind probably not to vote
6:01am
for the president for re- election. if you are conversely someone who feels that the president inherited the mess and it's turning around a ship slowly to fix this thing and you generally like where he is with his other programs, you have also already made up your mind. >> reporter: both candidates will be kick-starting their final push before tuesday's big election. president obama and mitt romney will be in the battleground state of ohio. political analysts say this could be the state to decide the electoral vote. again, this report is the last one to come out before election day. one that each candidate will definitely use for their advantage. while experts don't believe it will have a big impact on swing voters, we don't know if it will affect the stock market. >> thank you. the death toll keeps getting higher in the 10 states devastated by superstorm sandy. at least 92 people have been killed by the storm that struck sunday. on new york's staten island, searchers found the bodies of two young children who were
6:02am
swept from their mother's arms. also, in new york, a man was arrested for pulling a gun when he tried to cut into a gas line. cbs reporter randall pinkston joins us from the jersey shore with the problems people there are facing. >> reporter: that gun pulling stunt puts you on edge em if you are in a gas line like many of us are. you know, every day the public officials hold news conferences to talk about what's being accomplished. a lot is being accomplished. for example, we have utility workers from around the country helping to restore power. but when you have people who have no heat, no power, people standing in gas lines, it's understandable that tempers are fraying. reporter: you didn't have to look hard to find frustrated people. there were long lines to get gas and long lines to get into new york city, as police enforced a three-person per vehicle rule. traffic will only get better when all of the tunnels and subway lines are clear of water.
6:03am
and the pumps are operating 24 hours a day to speed up the process. but one look at this tunnel connecting manhattan and brooklyn shows just how much work is still left to be done. the nights are especially hard for people without electricity. >> we've been cold some nights. >> dark and cold. >> reporter: con ed says it will have power back on tomorrow for hundreds of thousands of people in manhattan. that's good news for elaine and mark. they have been stuck in their 20th floor apartment without elevator service since the storm knocked out power. >> coming up is really a hardship for us. >> that's why we stayed up here. >> reporter: here in new jersey, police began allowing people who live along the coast back into their homes for the first time since the storm. for many, it was an emotional homecoming. >> got upset. we lost everything we had. it's nothing we can do. >> reporter: vicente juarez says the water rose 3 feet high in his stafford township home.
6:04am
he spent the afternoon throwing everything away. damage from sandy is estimated at $50 billion. >> reporter: unfortunately a lot of people don't have insurance. another concern in new jersey, the water supply. governor chris christie has ordered a water emergency telling everyone they need to conserve. reporting live in stafford township. i'm randall pinkston. back to you. >> have you heard, are there people still trapped by these floodwaters? >> reporter: in hoboken, we think most of the people have been rescued. there are obviously some difficulties getting to everyone to make sure but it's been a very, very huge operation under way for the past few days. you know, hoboken floods even in a normal rain. this was an extraordinary event and no one anticipated what would happen in that disaster. >> no kidding. devastating as you're talking.
6:05am
you're looking at live pictures of new jersey right now. so you take care out there randall and thank you for that live report. new york's mayor michael bloomberg has decided to go ahead with sunday's scheduled new york city marathon. there's some criticism about the decision. but the mayor says the race will show the city's resilience and it will be a financial boost for the city. lawrence is out and about with the preview of the bay area science festival. what are you doing? >> oh, yeah. guys, i got to get this plane built. let me tell you, we're working on this really -- oh, i think i just bent the wing. [ laughter ] >> we'll have to do a little redo on that. but we're here enjoining the science festival at the tech museum of innovation. it's a great chance for you to bring the kids down. the whole family. there's something for everyone if you want to do it. it's taking place today and this weekend. so get down here and enjoy it if you want to do that. tell you what the weather is going to be great. we're looking at a lot of sunshine toward the afternoon.

just a couple of high clouds drifting by. it's a little chilly in spots. some 40s and 50s. we are looking' patchy fog in the valleys so watch out for that. through the day, that should lift. high clouds will drift through but temperatures will be mild mainly in the 60s and 70s. but you know what? as we look toward the weekend that ridge really taking over. temperatures could soar back into the 80s. we'll have more on that and more about the festival here and i'm going to see if i can get this thing to fly. so far, so good. it looks good so far on paper. elizabeth, we'll find out if it works. >> thank you. let's go out live towards the bay bridge. overall we're still doing great. this is a live look at those cars waiting to get through the pay gates. looks like slight delays in the cash lanes but the good news is no metering lights yet. things look good especially in the middle fastrak lane. elsewhere, to our maps. and other live traffic cameras. live look at the san mateo bridge. the right side of your screen
6:07am
that's the commute direction. so all those cars heading out of hayward still look good. they did wrap up that overnight roadwork in the westbound lanes. carquinez bridge eastbound lanes of interstate 80 everything is reopened. actually it hasn't. the eastbound lanes approaching crockett and the carquinez bridge toll plaza still blocking one lane. caltrains is paving scheduled it wrap up by 8:00 this morning. so a few brake lights now on highway 4 your usual spots and westbound 580 through the altamont pass. mass transit still on time. that is traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. 6:07. a violent attack here in san francisco at a muni station all caught on camera. cbs 5 reporter anne makovec tells us police say an angry bicyclist went after a station agent who got roughed up. >> reporter: he is going to be okay but still not back at work. the suspect was last seen out on the streets here at market and van ness. but he did get away and police
6:08am
are hoping this new security video will help track him down. it was taken on october 10 around 7:40 p.m. you can see the suspect running down the stairs with his bike after the agent told him bikes weren't allowed. the agent was following him. the suspect spins around and starts punching and kick the agent who is just out of the camera's view there. that agent is 55 years old. he was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. he is out of the hospital but he is still not back at work. there is surveillance video taken via the municipal transportation agency security cameras and there are witnesses on the platform watching this and if any of those folks have not yet had an opportunity to speak to investigators, we're asking them to come forward. >> the suspect is caucasian between 25 and 30 years old about 6 feet tall with brown hair. now, if you want to get another look at that video, you think you might know this guy, we have it for you on our website, cbssf.com. live in san francisco, anne makovec, cbs 5.
